The Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel

The Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel is located in the heart of the city on the banks of the Mississippi River. Whether you’re in the mood for some charbroiled oysters at Drago’s Restaurant, a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, or amazing views of the city, the Hilton New Orleans Riverside has you covered. The hotel is located at the foot of Poydras Street with the Convention Center, French Quarter, Jackson Square, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, Harrah’s Casino, and the Riverwalk Mall all within walking distance.

While you won’t have any trouble finding a great restaurant or bar anywhere in New Orleans, inside the Hilton Riverside you’ll find Drago’s Seafood Restaurant (a local institution), Le Croissant, and River Blends Café. For a drink, stop by Spirits in the middle of the hotel. If you’re looking for something more low-key, the Public Belt offers an atmosphere “where a speakeasy meets a piano bar”. Want to just grab a drink and enjoy any of the attractions nearby? No problem – “to go” cups are the norm in New Orleans.

Room rates start at $265 per night. MLA attendees can also enjoy complimentary internet access throughout the hotel as well as discounted parking and health club access.
